I recently developed an "output fault" on my salt chlorinator. Any ideas? Jandy/Zodiac claims that because I got 7 years out of it, it needs to be replaced. I disagree. Power is there, I can't get past the error.
It's fair to say that it's normal to replace the chlorinator cell when it reaches the end of its lifespan. The 'cell' (or sometimes 'electrode') is the the assembly inside the clear housing, with the blades, where the chlorine is made, the part that can be cleaned.
